Ailin Assady is a Reservoir Engineer at the EERC, where she interfaces with a diverse team of scientists and engineers to assess project uncertainties in oil and gas development and geologic CO2 storage. Ailin is pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Reservoir Engineering from UND. She holds a M.S. degree in Reservoir Engineering from the University of Amir-Kabir (Polytechnic), Iran, and a B.S. degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Tehran, Iran.
Ailin’s principal areas of interest and expertise include reservoir simulation and modeling multiphase flow in porous media; gas injection miscible process modeling in compositional simulation; natural gas storage and carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration; enhancing oil recovery in conventional/unconventional reservoirs; fluid modeling (pressure, volume, temperature); and pressure/rate transient analysis. Ailin has authored and coauthored several professional publications.
Ailin has been working at the EERC as a Research Assistant since June 2020 and is looking forward to working with reservoir modeling, evaluation, and optimization.
Ailin is from Iran and grew up in Tehran. She loves traveling, driving to new places and collecting souvenirs, cooking new recipes, reading, listening to podcasts, and watching movies. She has lived in Grand Forks for more than 3 years and says she loves the city’s nature in the spring and summer and the warm-hearted people.
